7 YouTube Channels to Ease the Stress of College

When you just disconnect from the constant work.

7 YouTube Channels to Ease the Stress of College

There comes a point in everyone's college career where you just need a break. You need some time to not have anything to do with your biology lab report or your ten-page essay for sociology. One of my favorite ways to disconnect from my school life is to hide in my bed, away from my backpack and scattered homework papers, and just watch YouTube. Here are seven of my favorite YouTube channels to keep your mind off of school amidst the stress.

1. UNHhhh


Katya Zamolodchikova and Trixie Mattel talk viewers through a wide range of topics like dating, food, and the drag scene. No topic is out of question for these two to discuss, and they do so in a hilarious fashion. They each have great wit and hospitality and these videos will make you want to stay in bed all day and binge.

2. Buzzfeed Unsolved


Buzzfeed Unsolved mixes humor with real life unsolved cases that are both less known and very popular in the horror community. Shane and Ryan travel to supposedly haunted places around the country and use ghost hunting technology to uncover their ongoing question, "are ghosts real?" In some episodes they stray away from supernatural mysteries and focus on unsolved crimes and criminals, highlighting the important facts and people from each case.

3. The Infographics Show


The Infographics show is more kid-friendly, but some episodes highlight traumatic and life scarring events, so don't be deceived! It is one of the most informative shows I've ever seen and always sends me into a never-ending Wikipedia black hole. This show covers 'what would happen if...' scenarios, true stories of survival, the lives of serial killers, and attempts to answer the questions we all have that never seem to be answered, all with unique animation making it easier to understand.

4. Billy On The Street


Billy on the Street was eventually turned into a TV show, but most of the snippets and original videos still reside on YouTube. Billy Eichner hilariously runs through the streets of New York asking pop culture questions and playing rapid-fire game show rounds with people who are least expecting it. If there's one thing about Eichner, it's that he is an open book and will confidently bring up any subject to any person. He always knows what to say and has no filter, adding to the humor of this show.

5. Safiya Nygaard


Many can agree that Safiya Nygaard's content flourished when she left Buzzfeed a few years ago. With similar styles to the videos she was making there, her content now fits her interests and lifestyle. Nygaard takes viewers on the journey to finding her wedding dress, testing out fashion from different decades, being experimental with makeup, and everything in between. It's easy to fall into binging sessions when you're watching Safiya.

6. Cut


Cut is an entertainment channel that takes the awkward out of confrontation. There are videos like "My Mom and I Take a Lie Detector Test", "Guess My Sexual Orientation", and "Gay Men Decide Who is the Gayest." The channel isn't all fun and games though, as some serious light is shone through videos of conversations with immigrants about what other people think of them and how they deal with living in America in the current political climate.

7. Jubilee


Jubilee is similar to Cut. These videos usually present a controversial topic and have people weigh in from each perspective, judgement free. There are videos about teen pregnancy from the perspective of the mom, medical professionals discussing vaccinations, and the different types of universities/colleges told by students, to name a few. Some of the things mentioned have challenged my way of thinking so I suggest you check out some of their debate videos to get your brain thinking.

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
